Take the best of Smart Systems Technologies: COWIN Marketplace at Euripides Forum 2012

The European project COWIN, aiming at fostering commercial exploitation of EU-funded research results in smart systems, will offer its matchmaking services during the EURIPIDES Forum in Graz (Austria) from 13–15 June 2012.
COWIN Marketplace will provide each participant with a personalised support as well as a selection of individual meetings with potential partners to take the best of smart systems.

Participants in this event will have the unique occasion to identify new business opportunities and innovative technologies, meet new partners, decision-makers and public authorities. The strength of COWIN Marketplace is to identify advanced technologies, developments and key players that suit best the each participant’s needs and requirements.
Euripides Annual Forum - a “smart rendez-vous”
The Euripides Annual Forum, one of the main “smart rendez-vous” for the smart systems community in Europe, brings together decision makers of industry, SMEs, academia, clusters, and public authorities. The 2012 edition especially highlights emerging technologies and future markets in the field of wireless connectivity (RFID, NFC), smart power applications and smart systems for medical applications.

COWIN Marketplace - a well-proven approach
The success of COWIN Marketplace on the Euripides Forum relies on the dedicated screening process operated by COWIN to individually match technology providers’ and end-users’ demands and needs in term of technologies, markets and partnerships. This process also takes into account the deeper knowledge on the advanced technologies, their applications and outlet that COWIN experts acquired since last Euripides Forum in Helsinki. Thanks to this in-depth approach of the technologies, COWIN experts are able to better identify new and realistic opportunities and to best support participants in the Marketplace.

Success relies as well on the close collaboration with Euripides, the EUREKA Cluster dedicated to Smart Systems, aiming at stimulating and supporting innovative projects for the development of new products, processes and services in this field. This collaboration practically allows participants in the COWIN Marketplace to benefit from a larger visibility during the Euripides Forum and deeper contact opportunities with those participants. The Euripides cluster indeed represents a broad scope of potential key industrial partners, increasing the opportunities for the exploitation of smart systems and for the identification of new applications and markets.

COWIN Evening Event - Enhanced Networking
The right environment is an important factor to foster networking. To achieve this, COWIN organises an Evening Event in one of the conference’s Hotels (Romantik Parkhotel) on the evening before the Euripides forum (12th June). Participants get the chance to get to know each other, set the first contacts in a relaxed atmosphere and start networking right after arriving in Graz.

Registration and further information:

COWIN is a support action launched under the 7th Framework Program of the European Commission for 3 years to strengthen the European competitiveness in Miniaturised Smart Systems. This initiative is dedicated to the commercial exploitation of advanced technologies developed in the framework of European collaborative research projects. COWIN’s mission is to facilitate take-up of the advanced technologies worthy of investments, in order to capture innovation, win new markets and make a profit.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
